The Other Side is a calm journey in a turbulent world.
Writer & Commentator Eric Margolis takes the viewer to meet the people and passions that inspire our world; to explore the destinations that helped define human history; and to experience the trends and trendsetters that will drive our future. It’s a view of cultures outside of the West, a clear look at a complex world.
It’s the other side of the story, the one that doesn’t usually get told in a travel show.
As an avid traveler and intrepid adventurer, Eric is uniquely qualified to provide context and perspective to intricate issues. With his first hand knowledge and savvy historic and diplomatic sensitivities, Eric will open a door behind the lines and beyond barriers to the places that most are fascinated by, few understand and everyone wonders about.
